Is digital manufacturing smart?
Abstract: For more than a decade, the wide implementation of sensors and connected devices has been heralded as the next industrial revolution. In this talk, I will review the changes that have taken place in the context of manufacturing systems since the 1960s, consider the latest in the state of the art and the best available future predictions for developments to answer the question of whether “digital manufacturing” and “smart manufacturing” are the same thing.
